A Bargain Sale
"A dollar and a half danco for a dol
lar and a quarter" la the Ingenious ad
vertisement with which atentlon has
boon called to tho date of ono of the
informals. Not vory long ago thla
very dance was given at a coat of only
ono dollar per. Not content with put
ting a moderato lining in their pockets
those in charge of a similar dance, a
year or bo ago suddenly raised the
prlco one-half, and tho raise, In this
ono instance, had the desired result.
That one aggresslvo committee was
financially benefited. But what has
boon tho result? Tho attendance at
tho informals has boon hurt, not much,
but to some considerable extent, and
tho attendance at the moro formal
dances has been hurt very greatly.
With tho increase in number and in
crease in price of the informals tho
Proms have suffered until now a Prom
committee congratulates itself if it
comes out een. As a result of de
creased attendanco money heretofore
expended In decorations, rofreBhments,
etc., 1b not available and hence the.o
attributes, which go so Xar toward an

It is doubtful whether any philan
thropic motives influenced tho com ml t-
jtco Ot the informal, so advertised, to
resort to this schomo, yot wo give
them the benefit of the doubt. They

lowing In tho samo lino and Influenced
by tho samo altruistic principles, will
advertise "a dollar and a quarter dance
for a dollar."
should bo a forceful reminder that,
whllo silent loyalty Is often a good
thing, spoken loyalty is mpro often
better and in such instances as a bas
ketball contest "yollod" loyalty Is best.
Thoso who attonded tho game showed
a substantial sort of spirit and had
moro oracular enthusiasm boon In ovl
dr.nco no complaint would bo forth
coming. Wo lost by ono point. Fate
may have boon against us. Mnybo we
would havo lost anyway. But if wo
must bo defeated let's havo tho fun of
scaring tho other follow. A well timed
cheer often turns victory one way or
tho other. That tho cheer was lacking
and that wo lost ought to bo a cau
tion to "not let It happen again."
Tho bill to make the playing of foot
ball a crlmo in Nebraska camo up for
disposal in the house yesterday and
was lost by a vote of 42 to 37. Think
of it! If tho right light had failed to

no such precarious condition as tho
above voto would indicate. The full
number of representatives supporting

many of the opposing majority confi
dent that tho very nature of the bill
would prove its own undoing mado no
offort to bo present.
Wo bad looked to see tho bill lost
